That's what motivates his "thoughts". That does make him a bad person in my book.

    Religion? Culture? Tradition? This has nothing to do with your OP, Navy.

    So you would not send your son to a camp where there were openly gay boys?

    I have to say I probably would not. My job as a parent isn't to be politically correct. It's to protect my son for as much as I can. Honestly? I wouldn't be worried about the counselors. I'd be worried about peer pressure from so-called gay boys who wanted my son to experiment. I'd want to protect him at camp -- just like I'd want to protect him from his friends in the basement of my home.

    Frankly? I think any parent who would answer otherwise is missing something.

    Government intrusion into personal life

    What is Conservative about government regulating/dictating the most personal aspect of a person's life?

    I don't think either party is the same......Hell I was a Liberal in the sixties myself.....Dems like to take credit for the Civil Rights act but most the ones from the south voted against it.

    Not sure not sending my son to a camp where gays serve openly covers that aspect...You do know who is pushing this against a private organization right?

    Thank you Maggie and I totally agree its not the Gay scoutmasters (although I rather they be straight) its the gay scouts who might be older and the peer pressure they might receive.

    Realize he also advocated for the government nationalizing the oil industry. But everyone else is a lefty.
